Hillary: Americans Should Be Put in Camps to Fix ‘Fun Deficit’

With what was perhaps unfortunate phrasing, Hillary Clinton told an Atlantic City, N.J. audience on Thursday that “we really need camps for adults” — claiming that doing so would fix America’s “fun deficit.”

During what many are billing as her last paid speech before she declares her presidential candidacy, Clinton spoke to a group of “camp professionals” about the serious challenges facing the United States.

“As I have gotten older, I have decided we really need camps for adults,” she said, according to a video provided by CNN. “I mean, really. None of the serious stuff, none of the ‘life challenge’ stuff. More fun!”

“I think we have a huge fun deficit in America,” Clinton continued. “And we need to figure out how to fill that fun deficit — certainly for our kids, but also for the rest of us.”

Hillary noted that while America is now more welcoming of differences in race, creed and sexuality, we remain divided politically.

“Maybe mix it up a little bit,” she suggested. “You can have the red cabin, the blue cabin have to come together and actually listen to each other. Wouldn’t that be a novel idea!”
